This mystery/thriller was incredible! I loved the whole set up. Natalie works at the front desk of a high school that is known for it’s sports department and the entitled teens that go there. Natalie has an interesting past so when things become derailed at the school with a certain staff member, she becomes a suspect in a crime.
Going between Natalie’s police interview and the start of everything to the explosive ending was the perfect way to tell this story. It’s fast-paced and intense. I definitely recommend This!
Wow! I am speechless. I read this in one sitting simply because the author drew me in so completely with this hypnotic writing that did more than just tell a story. I Am Margaret Moore is full to brimming with emotion and I can see so many people relating to this tale on multiple levels.
Four girls with an incredible friendship developed at a camp over many summers of attendance are always there for each other. Even when it’s difficult, confusing and life-changing. This story speaks on deep friendships and love, heartbreak and betrayal. I was entranced to the last page and I believe this book will always be on my mind.
I highly recommend this read. I feel like I was there. That Margaret Moore’s emotions were mine and this story is now a part of me, too. There are some trigger warnings for death, loss, grief and unsettling scenes.
I really liked this book but there was one thing that bothered me. And, this is something that would bother me about any horror or thriller book. Mainly it’s predictability. I was able to predict something that would have been more exciting not to know. Especially when the ending revealed all this books secrets.
Now, I’m not saying I predicted everything. There were so many different aspects to this story that when the truth was revealed at the end it left me completely shocked.
I loved the small town centered around this creepy old church and the Secrets that seemed to be kept by everyone. Jack, the mother of daughter Flo (age 15) and Vicar of the church, was a really interesting character to follow through this. Especially with the peeks into her past that didn’t completely make sense until the end. I also loved Flo bc she really reminded me of myself, lol. I loved her attitude.
This is definitely worth a read for fans of horror and thrillers. But, the question remains… What do you need from horror and thrillers? I need them to be unpredictable and I’m wondering if anyone agrees?
Omygosh… this book freaked me out. Centering around a disease called The Violence that basically will create a sudden rage in a person and this rage is taken out on anyone unlucky enough to be around them.
This book does have a theme besides violence. It shows the reader the lengths someone will go to protect themselves and their loved ones. This survival instinct is possibly what is stronger than The Violence itself. And, even when things look dire, there is that spark of hope when someone carries on against all odds.
This was a tough read for me. Lot’s of trigger warnings: Physical and sexual assault and, of course, violence. Although I had a hard time getting through parts of it, I would recommend this to anyone who can handle the emotional impact of this book along with an overt amount of violence.
I am not great with new years resolutions, but I’d love to focus on only reading what I really want to read this year! I would like to embrace my inner fantasy romance goddess… and chill!
I am currently focusing on finishing the sequel to The Ravens. So far I love it! The Monarchs is a great continuation of this world and it will be out on January 11th!!
I am excited to begin a new year! It’s not exactly a clean slate but it’s an opportunity to gain some motivation and give certain things in my life a better chance of success. Wishing everyone a great start to 2022!
